    Let's get to the really important questions. Is Lauren Thompson as attractive in person as she appears on the tube? Any chance she has a thing for old, balding, sucky golfers?

    You're gonna call BS, but she's prettier in person. I wonder if she likes old hairy sucky golfers!

    Isn't Poulter still most overrated?? Underrated in the US at least has to be A Noren or T Hatton

    The rule about winners getting an exemption at Augusta was changed that year, then reinstated a couple years later. Oh well...it doesn't bother me one bit

    Actually, I totally believe it as she also seems like a fun young lady. Feel free to ask her the other question. Thank you Sir!

    LOL, not even the news she's having a baby which should dash all hopes doesn't faze you guys - men everywhere should be proud!!!!!



    And I'm not being sarcastic - just still stinging from the reprimand I received over the weekend from my wife when commenting on how nice LT looked and her rosy glow (or my way of saying those things, which may have been the issue),

    1) No. Guts and will power separate top pros. Driving it 330 in the middle of the fairway helps too.

    2) Greg Kraft if hands down funniest tour player ever. He works blue though!

    3) No idea about how many times GC plays Tin Cup, but it has one of the worst endings in cinematic history..
    Why, because the pin position on 18 was worse than the 18th at Olympic in 1998? Did you play that US Open? How bad was that pin position?

    1) How much dislike is there from players with fans having the ability to call in rules infractions?



    2) When we hear the Lerner nose whistle during the broadcast, is there a hotline we can call to have them move is mic?

    I did not, I hated that he kept hitting from the same spot to prove a point.

    Rarely, if ever is it even brought up.

    Tom Coyne wrote an excellent book, "The Paper Tiger." Its about his pursuit of going from a 5 handicap to the PGA Tour. Obviously he doesn't make it. But along the way he runs into a drunken caddie prior to a Latin American Q School event. He explains his quest to the caddie. At the time he was a +.05. The caddy laughs and explains to Tom, "Scratch ain't Shi**." The caddie goes onto to tell him, "I'm sorry but you simply cannot play." It's a great book/story. But is it true that a 15 handicap is closer to a Scratch golfer in skill level than a scratch golfer is a to a tour player?



    Thank you so much for doing this. What a cool way to connect with golf fans!

    Yeah, that was dumb as well but on the one shot in the sequence he hit it to a couple feet and the ball paused and then rolled back down into the water. No matter if you laid up or not either the next shot or a putt from the green would have gone into the water.

    I'd say Dustin Johnson could give a scratch golfer 12 shots at a US Open setup course and I'd take DJ 9/10 times. An easier course maybe 6/10.

    Thanks.

    So here's another on that seems to be popular on this site. Do you think a male 4 handicap can beat a mid level LPGA player?



    We all know the answer but it would be great to have a professional opinion!

    More like how her cute little belly button was sticking out and how she had grown a little in certain areas - all valid scientific observations.

    Close friends and family always come first in life.



    Why do you think that Justin Thomas, who's going to a wedding of one of his good friends, that was scheduled many months before Arnold Palmer's passing, should shun his friend to participate in the tournament at Bay Hill instead? I'm having a very hard time coming up with logical reasoning for your stance on this.
    You're right. Close friends and family are the most important thing in your life next to good health.

    That being said, only 10 of 25 players are coming to this year's API. Very few top players went to his funeral. That is awfully disrespectful to his legacy and his family.

    I am fine with JT going to the wedding, but hopefully he makes a personal call to Mr Palmer's family to explain.

    When I sent the original tweet, I was a sitting at Mr Palmer's old table in the Bay Hill locker room and had a couple beers in me. I wouldn't do it if I had it to do over.
    Thoughts on Gary Player not attending Mr. Palmers funeral and paying his final respects to his life long friend? To me that is light years more disrespectful than certain players of today not attending his funeral or playing his event this year.
    Word was that Gary Player couldn't get visa in time to get there from South Africa. That's totally understandable.
    I'm not buying that explanation. It's highly likely that Players B2 (business) USA visa if for multiple years (can be valid for 10 years) and multiple visits for up to 6 months at a time. Given Players business interests in the USA that could require him to be here at various times I doubt his USA visitors visa has ever expired. That's the last I'll say on it. Thank you for taking the time to answer questions in this thread.

    Robert what do you make of this statement from Tiger?



    "Unfortunately, due to ongoing rest and rehabilitation on my back, I won't be able to play in this year's Arnold Palmer Invitational," Woods said. "I'm especially disappointed because I wanted to be at Bay Hill to help honor Arnold. This is one event I didn't want to skip. Arnold has meant so much to me and my family; I thought of him as a close friend, and Sam and Charlie were both born in the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. He will be greatly missed and can never truly be replaced."
